Fiction’s finest female alliances.

Throughout history we have seen how the world takes notice when women unite for a shared idea or cause. In early 2018 women rallied together at Women’s Marches around the world to advocate for equality and justice, while 2017 saw the rise of the #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns on social media which drew attention to the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment in the arts. But it’s not just these real-life movements that have the power to inspire; fiction writers have been championing female alliances for years in the form of friendships, crime-fighting teams, resistance stories and familial sagas. Here are some fictional stories that celebrate the strength of the sisterhood.
